Overview

Make smooth, grit-free coffee—thanks to our double micro-filter. Surrounded by a silicone lip that runs along the rim, the basket fits snugly inside the container and creates a vacuum seal. When you press the plunger down, extraction stops immediately—so your brew is consistent from the first pour to the last.
